The Political Science Student Association (PSSA) is hosting a domestic violence prevention and awareness event on Tuesday, April 22 from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the Quad of Fullerton College located at 321 E. Chapman Avenue in Fullerton. The event will include A Walk in Her Shoes and the Clothesline Project. Participating in the event will be Fullerton College alumna and domestic violence survivor Holly McCrary.
Coordinators of the A Walk in Her Shoes event invite interested males to participate in the event by wearing a pair of women’s heels and walking through the Quad. The walk will take place at 12:30 p.m. The event is a spin-off of the award-winning Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event by the organization of the same name. Donations will also be accepted to support the awareness efforts of PSSA and Holly’s organization Strength Against Violence which assists survivors of domestic violence and other violent crimes.
The Clothesline Project will address violence against women by hanging T-shirts, decorated with powerful messages and stories regarding violence against women, from clotheslines draped throughout the Quad.
